ProcedureHow to Configure the Packet Size

Use the following procedure to change the default packet size by adjusting the net.slp.MTU property.

  1. Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  2. Stop slpd and all SLP activity on the host.

    # svcadm disable network/slp
  3. Back up the default /etc/inet/slp.conf file before you change the configuration settings.

  4. Change the net.slp.MTU property in the slpd.conf file:


    A 16–bit integer that specifies the network packet size, in bytes

    Default Value=1400

    Range of Values=128–8192

  5. Save your changes and close the file.

  6. Restart slpd to activate your changes.

    # svcadm enable network/slp
